So I went to Amazon and I found this little A/C. It came out pretty good.

Some of the reviews scare me, but took a shot at ordering one as well. C&D inbound?

Hee....heee...heeeee! Showed up just now.



Was thinking - "Now THIS could be a fundraiser." $7 each shipped, sell them for $10."  I bet I could turn 100 of
these around in a day at the right venue, and probably get a better price buying them in bulk.  If nothing else
probably shave a little off shipping then in quantity.  This hits pilots, techies, other aircrew, even family members. 
Wouldn't be a bad AEX project either, and it gives you something cool, different, and unobtrusive for your desk or dresser.

Awesome find LATORRECA!

I can't do those metal earth models for nothing.  I went through 3 of the cap planes and never successfully put one together.  They are, as the Waterboy's mama might say, THE DEVIL!

Eh...100 * 3 = $300.


Seems like a lot of paperwork, effort, time for that kind of turnaround. Not to mention what happens when you don't sell enough of them.

I know you have to be real careful separating the pieces - use an X-Acto with a cutting surface or board and take your time.
My son got a complicated bridge kit and basically FUBARED it while separating the parts.

Eh, maybe, but the low price is part of the appeal, like I said, I bet you could get the price down even further
which could potentially increase the profit or make them even easier to sell.  People love cheap crap, especially altruistic cheap crap, and this isn't crap.

As someone who is mired each year in popcorn, candy bars, wreaths (not WAA), cheesecakes, pizzas, and all manner of other stuff,
$300-500 revenue is about what you make (depends on a lot of factors).  That would pay for the sniffer we just bought.

The initial capital outlay would be an issue, but I suppose depending on the sales channel you could take advance sales and lower the risk like
people do with Cookies and other perishables.

I guarantee you the first year someone brings these to a wing conference they are sold out.

I bought a bunch of the different models months ago. I haven't put the CAP one together yet, but the Wright Flyer is pretty neat.

Amazon seller said "Negatory" on volume sales.  Waiting on a response from Fascinations promotional department.

There's a couple different ones, but direct to mfg is the way to go.
